My Mobility Scooter won't go

7. Is Your Charger Working


7. Is Your Charger Working

When you connect your charger the charge light should come on. Once the battery is 95% charged then the charge light should go out.

Charging can take up to 12 hours, I always recommend you leave your battery on charge over night, the charger will switch off the charge internally once your battery is fully charged

    1. It is safe to charge a scooter indoors, with the following provisos
      • The area is well ventilated
      • The charger is not covered, preventing good air flow through and over the charger
      • The charger is not placed in contact with inflammable materials or liquids
      • The charger is not placed in a damp area, or an area subject to water / rain splashing onto it.
      • Keep out of the reach of children and pets

  1. On #7 Is your charger working? does your reference to the green light refer to the Scooter display or the charging unit? There are two lights on the charger and both are green when plugged into scooter.

  2. A friend has a Shoprider Explorer. Apparently she tried to go up a hill and it died on her. They brought the unit back and she has no lights at all on unit when the key is turned. I see advice which says push rest button but can not find a reset button could ignition be reset button? Suspicious that there is nothing lit up on the unit. The charger is on right now and plugged in and both lights on the charger are green. Person who wheeled unit back said the brakes were on. Has me puzzled. If you have any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. Hi Eric
      Sorry for not responding quickly, this is the busiest time of year for mobility engineers.

      Your friend may have tripped the reset / overload / cut out button, the location of which depends on the type and make of scooter.

      In general if it is a “Boot Scoot” (one that comes apart an goes into the boot of a car). The battery box is removable from the scooter and the reset button is located on the battery box.

      If the scooter is a mid to large size, then the reset button is situated under the battery cover (which is under the seat). Usually there is a hole cut into the battery cover so it can be reset without removing the battery cover.

      If after charging the batteries over night and resetting the overload there is still no lights then your friend should seek advice from your local Mobility shop, as it could be a fuse blown or the batteries have been discharged too far, the latter will require new batteries.

    1. Hi Ruth, I am glad we were able to help, sorry for the delay in responding, this is due to a large increase in serviceing and brakedowns on mobility equipment.
      I hope you are enjoying the better weather, and making the most of it on your scooter
      Kind Regards
      Pete
